What is Snapstreak?

Snapstreak is a very unique feature of Snapchat that counts and displays the number of consecutive days in which two friends have sent Snaps (photos or videos) to each other within a fixed window of 24 hours.
So, if you have a Snapstreak with a friend, then 🔥 emoji will be displayed next to his name on the Chat screen of Snapchat, along with the number of days the streak has been going on. In order to keep the streak going, both friends must send alt least one Snap to each other within the 24-hour window.
And if a Snap is not sent during this period, the Snapstreak will be lost and the 🔥 emoji will also be disappeared.
It is important to note that the normal conversational messages and Snaps sent in groups that include the many other users are not counted in a Snapstreak.

Sometimes, when you and your friend are failed to send Snaps (not chat) to each other within a particular window of 24-hours, this results in the loss of your ongoing Snapstreak. As a result, the 🔥 emoji also disappears in front of the names of both friends.
